Learning Rational
Wellness programmes at the workplace typically centre around the employee’s physical
health in the form of leisure and fitness courses. The rationale is straightforward: if the
employee is healthy, he is likely to be more energetic and alert at work and at the same time,
have less health-related issues and take less medical leave. These in turn, all other things
held constant, lead to a higher output per worker.
Yet equally important is the financial health of the employee. Through anecdotes by HR
Directors and Managers in Singapore, it is apparent that financial distress is encountered by
the employee and has a direct impact on the employer. By implementing an employee
financial wellness programme, organisations can improve the financial capability of
their employees as well as achieve their organizational goals.
Through this learning day, we hope personnels can learn:
- understand ways to help staff who are in debt.
- best practices from organisations who have implemented financial education programmes
at their workplaces.
- how to access to free and unbiased financial literacy education programmes
